Hundreds Of Immigrant Advocates Rallied Across New York State For Passage Of Coverage For All Bill

“If I had health insurance, I would be able to get a free preventative mammogram and cervical cancer screening, but instead I’m forced to pay hundreds of dollars and spend months waiting for an appointment. Thousands of immigrant New Yorkers like me, suffer in silence due to the lack of medical care, access to medication and essential lab work for our health. It is long overdue for the Governor and legislature to include the Coverage for All legislation in the state budget to ensure all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status, can have comprehensive and affordable health care insurance,” said Norberta G., Make the Road New York member and Yonkers resident.
